Man Utd legend Robson: Arsenal's Wilshere needs to score more

Manchester United and England legend Bryan Robson has told Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere to improve his goalscoring.

When he returns, says former England skipper Robson, he must start scoring more goals and being more influential in order to emulate the likes of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

"Jack is more or less an attacking midfield player but he doesn't score enough goals," said Robson, who scored 26 times in his 90 caps.

"So he has either got to get his timing right to get into the box to score more or he has to practice on the training pitch how to actually finish how Steven Gerrard would. Gerrard can play in a sitting role and still score you a cracking goal from 25 yards. I don't see Wilshere doing that."
